I like the exposed hammers. I want one actually.

I saw a used Norinco for sale at a gun show once for $800. And a guy bought it

I’ve owned mine for about 8 years, shot some cowboy action with it.  I never had any issues with it, defiantly fun to shoot.  Finish sucks but it’s a solid shotgun, patterned after a Colt 1878 Coach.  I polished the chambers so shells would drop free, ejectors were required to be disabled for Cowboy Action.   Setting off both barrels is badass.

I like mine. Finish is decent.  As previously mentioned, heavy as fuck.  But it's got live hammers and decent triggers.

I have the Ruskie version (Bakail or however the hell it is spelled )... Mine has twin triggers and internal hammers (actual box-lock action from what I can tell).
Amazing value for the price.
Wood fits well, but was proud all around... Easy fix with some sanding and a refinish of the buttstock.  Forearm just needed a minor touch at the rear / action.
I disabled the auto-safety as the safe on open thingy was a bit much... Safety functions fine, just not automatically anymore.
Trigger pull was pretty stout, specially on the rear trigger... Was a pretty simple fix to smooth and lighten both triggers.

I bought it as a Joe Biden Special. . I shall loose both barrels off the balcony while screaming like Biden / Chunk from the Goonies to thwart criminals intent on harming my family.

I ended up buying the Ruskie double rifle version in .45/70 as well... Action is the same, barrels are interchangeable.  Love that rifle... Beginner model safari double.

Bought another shotgun as a project, working up an action block now, will be fitting a set of barrels... Thinking about a .470NE.  From what I can find, the action should be strong enough. .  I'm guessing this project will take a few years to actually get shooting..l when it does though....

I have a Norinco. Triggers are on the small size for my hands. I can fire both barrels at once but it takes some work to get fingers on both triggers. Fit and finish is good. Hammers look fragile but have held up well.

I bought a nornico JW2000 model in 12g back in '08.  Haven't shot it yet.  I wouldn't shoot anything but lead shot out of it though when I finally get around to it.

They look a little rough close up.

I looked at them but decided to just buy a Stevens 311 and cut it down to legal length.  I put a bead on the end and went with that instead.

I bought one just for that "vintage appearing" feature.  The gun has a "trigger interlock" that prevents the hammer from reaching the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled, so it's a rather safe system versus the old style "firing pin on hammer" models.  It makes a fun little gun to keep around loaded in places where an AR would look out of place, like as a fireplace gun.
